of this means a lot to the new young leader of north korea, kim jong-un. it is aimed to mark the first anniversary of the death of his father, the former leader of the country, kim jong-il. it was supposed to mark a year to show that the impoverished nation is on its way to be strong and prosperous. we see pongyang magging the message more than it usually does both for the domestic and international audience. my contacts are saying they will call this a success whatever happens. secretary of state hillary clinton here in europe for a nato meeting is also managing her message pretty closely too. she is saying that the u.s. is concerned and she is telling north korea to not even consider this launch. the reason from the u.s. standpoint again, if this is successful, this is the long range intercontinental ballistic missile. it could have a range of 6,000 miles plus. that could put whatever it is shooting up there in range of los angeles. and just breaking news here, gregg, from nato itself. that organization is saying that it has grave concerns about this activity. back to you. gregg: gre

are three scenarios that i potentially see. one, the new leader, kim jong-un wants to send a message domestically that he presides over a powerful military and space operation. secondly, that that space launch failed and this one will not. another reason might be the presidential elections in south korea, which are december 19th. maybe they want to influence or disrupt them. the third is the traditional north korea action to get attention. here we are. we've been out of the headlines, middle east, gaza, rockets there, we're back. and this is what we're capable of doing. those are the three potential reasons that i see. one most likely being kim jun jung-il. he wants to show his people that he governs a powerful nation that wants to show it's nation. >> he is approaching, as chris said, the first anniversary of his rule. how should the international community react when this launch takes place, assuming it's successful. >> i would say the launch will happen. obviously, it's a test of missile technology. the international community, the security council, will invoke more sanctions, the

and then suddenly on calendar, e for many, and kim jong-il got very lucky. the three latest attempts had all failed. and this one appears, appears to be a success. something is in orbit. >> we know the rocket range is something like 5,000, 6,000 kilometers. what does the distance tell you? >> well, it is technology. it is a three stage rocket. that's what is significant here. >> tells you it is advanced. >> this is 1950s scud technology they built, a lot of people thought they would never get this far with it. but they made incremental advances. so in that sense, it poses a threat. remember, while they were celebrating in the streets of pyongyang, there were probably also celebrating in the control rooms in iran because those two share their missile technology. >> what about ally, china? china -- >> that was a big surprise. >> let me quote, expressed regret, quote/unquote. regret from china? >> china has been their backer, tried to support them quietly in all these talks. but for them to come out today and say we regret that this happened -- >> north korea further isolating themselves. >> further i

this is the first anniversary of kim jong-un's rule because his dad died in the middle of december. i think it is because iran. iranians want a long-range missile. the north koreans have to test it to know it works and north koreans need the cash and iranians will not buy something that fails. jenna: that is interesting. since that time, iran says we're not in any sort of business with north korea. that's what they say. >> right. jenna: it is up to us to be skeptical to look into this. what makes you really believe the connection is being made? >> we know who is in another cree for iran. it is rep sentsd -- representatives of the industrial group. they are the people who at the end of last decade, two decades ago bought north korea's nadong missile and repainted with iranian colors and gave it to the armed forces and unveiled as the shahab-3. this connection goes back 15, 20 years. jenna: you say iranian officials are on the ground in north korea. >> right. jenna: has nothing to do with tourism. it has to do with business? >> it has nothing to do with sking. >> north korea needs money. iran
